Ground Of The Gods - Poem by Jordan Legaspi

ground of the gods
Before your cross a promise of life
against the endless battle of strife
between you and I
in a world confronted with secret and lie

Before your cross a verdict of justice
after the long years against the yes
between reason and will
in a paradise flattered with fear of hell

Before your cross a message of love
against the forever of pretense and bluff
between the fate of birth and death
in the valley full of pain and guilt

Before your cross an example of charity
against the lifetime of gluttony
between man and woman
in the humanity stained with murder and crime

Before your cross a lesson of faith
against the infinite promise of deceit
between now and forever –the sin
in the horizon hovered with great pain

Before your cross an account of truth
against the malicious spirit, sloth
between here and now –the spiritual sickness
in the soul poisoned with rotten flesh
